CCPO Karachi further stated that he would remain in contact with the trade and industrys representatives personally and hold frequent meetings with trade bodies in this regard. Winning business communitys confidence is Karachi Polices first priority and I will remain in contact with the business representatives for 24 hours, said Laghari. He said that in order to curb the incidents of kidnapping for ransom and threat calls, a plan is being made and the outcome of the plan would be shared with the industrial leaders. He advised the industries to install close circuit cameras in front of their factories and offices to monitor and provide footage in case of any crime to present before the court and the culprit could be punished. The camera surveillance would also help eliminate crimes to a great extent, he added. Chairman KATI, Syed Johar Ali Qandhari, in his address said that the industrialists are extremely worried over increasing street crimes particularly robberies in KIA. He apprised the police chief that robberies at factories, mobile phone and vehicles snatching cases, kidnapping for ransom and encroachments have created a sense of insecurity among the industrialists. He demanded of the CCPO to evolve an effective strategy to curb the crimes in the area. He mentioned that the encroachments have reached to even embankments of Malir River in the area. The Chief Patron KATI, S M Muneer, advised the Government to strengthen police department in order to curb the crime form the country. He vehemently declared that ministers are not the special species that they are required bulletproof vehicles at the cost of public funds. He pointed out the example of a poor country like Mozambique where president and prime minister move with a couple of security guards and those without any latest weapons. He said that government should improve its intelligence system to nip the evil in the bud.
